I've heard it's hard at first but we've never cooked inside or used the fan....

I've only unlatched ours once, and it was a pain in the neck (and fingers) to get open. I do keep it latched though as it's a great entry point for bugs, and there's nothing worse than a mosquito buzzing you while you're trying to sleep.

Same thing on our 2013 White Hawk 31DSLB. I release one side at a time to open it. During colder trips when using the heater I close it when not cooking as the heater exhaust is below it and I always worried about fumes coming in.

I opened mine finally, but then had to listen to it flap in the wind all night. Has to be a better way...

We beat the bugs by running a small (3/8" wick) oil lamp as a night light. We keep it filled with citronella (Tiki Torch) fuel.
